- Apprentice Lawyer
Any talk of access to justice in India inevitably circles round to the almost perennial, much-lamented issues of case pendency, backlog, and delays in justice delivery.
The criticism of a legal system plagued by endless litigation involving financially-debilitating lawyer's fees and innumerable court appearances is trite.
In an effort to bring new learnings on how judicial delays are understood, Bangalore-based civil society organisation DAKSH has released a new book titled Justice Frustrated: The Systemic Impact of Delay in Indian Courts. The books attempts to carve out the reasons for delay and its repercussions on the lives of litigants and society.
